Score Amazon Deals
Surprise! Even though we celebrated Amazon Prime Day in July, the mega-retailer announced a second notable savings event — Prime Big Deal Days — in October. Of course, it's never too early to start jotting down your wish list for this big sale. Below, in this article, we break down what you need to know before the event.
What is Prime Big Deal Days 2023?
The Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is a sale event solely for Prime members taking place in the fall season, ahead of holiday shopping. If it's something like last year's Prime Early Access Sale, it will host two days of special savings on thousands of items in all product categories.

When is Amazon Prime Big Deal Days 2023?
Amazon announced that Prime Big Deal Days will occur this year on Oct. 10 and 11. Last year, the Prime Early Access Sale was on Oct. 11 and 12, so it only makes sense this year's will happen in a similar time frame.
In the past several years, Amazon Prime Day was for two days.
Before 2020, Prime Day took place in July, but in 2020, due to the pandemic, the sale was delayed. It took place in October instead. In 2021, the event was held in the summer with a June date, the Prime Early Access Sale occurring in October of that same year. Earlier this year, in 2023, Prime Day took place in July.
How to prepare for Amazon Prime Big Deal Days
First things first: Make sure you have your Amazon Prime membership. You can sign up for your 30-day free trial h; your membership will cost $14.99 monthly or $139 annually afterward, here. In addition to fast, free two-day shipping, you'll have access to Prime Video, unlimited photo storage, ad-free music streaming, unlimited reading, and other perks. Prime Big Deal Days' best deals, including Lightning Deals, are only available to Prime members.
Once your membership is ready, you should also ensure your payment methods, including 1-Click settings plus default delivery, are up to date so you can score your desired deals promptly.
How to find the best Prime Big Deal Days deals
You want to bookmark the Amazon Deals Page, where all the items included in the big sale will appear. Check often and early on the big sale; Prime Big Deal Days deals will likely sell out quickly, and new deals should be updated throughout the discounts and sale event.
As mentioned earlier, you'll also find Amazon's famed Lightning Deals on the page. Note: you can filter your view to see only Lightning Deals using the panel on the left side of the page.
One of the most impressive deals from Prime Day 2023 was on the Bissell Little Green Pet Deluxe Portable Carpet Cleaner and Car/Auto Detailer.
Amazon cut the price of this carpet cleaner to a major low, causing this device to sell out before the sale ended.
What are the best sales we expect?
Amazon hasn't officially made an announcement on any specific deals, but on Prime Day, we saw savings that ran from electronics and major appliances to small household items. Based on what we saw this summer, here are some of the deals we are expecting to see this year:
- Apple Watch Series 8: The Apple Watch Series 8 was on sale during Prime Day at its lowest price ever. Climate Pledge Friendly
- Samsung Frame Series Smart TV: During July's Prime Day, you were able to find significant savings on the viral Frame in all sizes.
- 2021 Apple TV 4K: Our upgrade pick for the best streaming device was $70 off during the last Prime Day.
- iRobot Roomba j7+ Robot Vacuum: You could buy multiple models of the smart robot vacuum at a discount, but this high-tech one was down to the lowest price we've ever seen.
- Sony WH-1000XM5: Our top pick for the best overall headphones was down to a new low price this past Prime Day in blue, white and black color.
What are the best sales we expect?
Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days is one of many big sales to look out for, as many other major retailers will likely also offer discounts.
Walmart vs Amazon
While we highly recommend Amazon for many items listed above, Walmart may be slashing prices on electronics, home goods, and more to near or better than Amazon pricing (Walmart Deals – Holiday Kickoff start on October 9, 2023). Both offered significant savings on various products in July to coincide with Prime Day.
Electronics giant Best Buy will likely compete with Prime Big Deal Days deals. In July, the retailer offered savings on particular laptops, including MacBooks, small kitchen appliances, gaming desktops, and more.
Wayfair will likely be the place to find the best deals for those looking for deep discounts on furniture and home appliances. We anticipate the retailer will offer sales of up to 60% off — the same savings it promoted in July — on the exact dates as the Prime Big Deal Days.
